Dr. Anuj Agrawal

  • I was suffering from severe arthritis in both knees since several years, and Dr. Anuj Agrawal did bilateral knee replacement for my knees. I was extremely satisfied by the outcome of the surgery. Contrary to my expectations, I didn’t have any significant pain just 3 days after surgery, and could walk without support at 2 weeks. I have a low sitting at my office, and have no problem in sitting cross-legged on the floor after surgery. I highly recommend Dr. Anuj for knee replacement surgery based on my experience.

  • I underwent bilateral knee replacement in a single sitting for my knee pain at Max Hospital, Patparganj. My surgeon DrAnuj Agrawal took good personal care of me, right from the time of admission till discharge. I was apprehensive that a bilateral surgery would be very painful with a prolonged rehabilitation period. However, I was painfree within 2 weeks of surgery and could get back to work within 6 weeks. I recommend DrAnuj Agrawal for his expertise in joint replacements.

  • I had arthritis of both my hips due to a condition called avascular necrosis. I used to walk with severe limp, and could not sit properly due to the condition of my hips. Dr. Anuj Agrawal did uncemented hip replacements for both my hips, at an interval of 6 weeks. I could walk without support just 2 weeks after the second surgery and could even ride a scooter at 1 month. I have become completely painless now, and am quite happy by the outcome of the surgery. I would highly recommend Dr. Anuj Agrawal for hip replacements.

  • Joint Replacement

    Arthroplasty or joint replacement is surgery conducted to replace a damaged joint with an artificial joint (which is either made of metal, ceramic, or plastic). The joint replacement surgeons usually replace the entire joint (total joint replacement) or only the damaged part of the joint, based on the health condition. Joint replacement surgery is mostly suggested to patients suffering from advanced end-stage joint disease. In most cases, joint replacement is done for the knee, hips, or shoulders. The patients might have tried non-surgical treatment, but still, experience functional decline and disabling pain. Joint replacement is one of the most effective surgery if done by an expert joint replacement surgeon.

    Modern joint replacement surgery includes removing worn cartilage from both sides of the joint, followed by resurfacing the joint with a metal and plastic replacement implant that looks similar to a normal joint. Although almost all joints in the human body can be replaced, in most cases, these surgeries involve the hip or knee.

    With the enhancement in technology, improved surgical techniques and new implant materials are being used while doing joint replacement surgery. Consult with Dr. Anuj Agrawal, who is the best joint replacement surgeon in Delhi NCR. Today joint replacement is one of the most reliable and durable procedures in any area of medicine.

    Who requires joint replacement surgery ?

    The surgeon would recommend a joint replacement surgery in case you have:

    • Joint pain, which has worsened with time and has not improved despite various nonsurgical treatments like physical therapy (PT), medications, bracing, injections, walking assistive devices, and rest.

    • In case, there is joint stiffness and limited mobility thereby making it difficult to do everyday activities.

    • If there is swelling (inflammation) that has not improved despite taking medications.

    Is Joint Replacement Safe?

    Today, joint replacement is one of the safest and most trusted treatments in the field of medicine. A joint replacement done today typically can be expected to last for more than 20 years. In fact, the majority of the patients undergoing joint replacement surgery get a permanent solution for arthritis of the hip or knee. It is in fact, considered the best possible treatment option after a reasonable attempt at non-surgical management has been determined to be unsuccessful.

    The patients planning to get a joint replacement surgery done must contact Dr. Anuj Agrawal, a leading joint replacement surgeon in Delhi NCR. Dr. Anuj is MBBS (AIIMS), MS (PGIMER), MCh (USAIM), and MRCS (UK) with more than 15 years of experience in this field.
